How to setup Akitio Node + MacBook Pro 2016 13inch with TouchBar + Asus Geforce GTX 1060 + Windows 10 Pro Bootcamp (Not Activated)
I have purchased an Akitio Node after i have seen a video posted in Youtube that was able to make an external GPU work. After days of searching for an RX 480 Graphics Card as used in the video, i ended up buying an Asus Geforce GTX 1060 Dual Series 6GB DDR5. After installing the GPU Card in the Akitio Node, I was so excited to see how it works but to no avail 🙁
So far what i have achieve, is the first step in the video where
- I booted my laptop to windows 10,
- installed the Intel Thunderbolt 3 driver and
- flashed the new firmware to the Akitio Node.
After the steps above, When I hot plug the akitio node to the macbook pro (with windows on), suddenly i will get a BSOD. If I boot windows while the Akitio Node is plugged in, the display will flicker on the windows bootup logo then it will freeze and i needed to force turn-off the macbook. I am losing hope that i could make my egpu setup work, that's why i came to your website for help.
